if i were you i would go lib. the jones would be better if you rode more powder. but the lib will be good for all around. you could try looking at the dark series too they make those in wide, in quite a few sizes too. you basically just need to pick one, and bring it home. they're all good boards they're pro models and the way you say you ride i would go lib. its good for anything. i ride a lib and my buddy rides a lib, and we shred everything, mostly alpine and trees, but neither of us have anything bad to say about the boards. actually mine has gotten squirrelly on me a few times, tends to happen on hard packed roads that aren't flat. its pretty much like a speed wobble in the centre of your board. other wise it never happens, only then. but if you are as aggressive as you say you are, then you might want to consider a camber board. way better edge hold, one thing i miss about that compared to lib. i can still rip the shit out of it down the groomer, but that edge hold just isn't as stable as camber. (i think there are hybrid boards that are more camber biased, but will minor rocker) and i like to rip it and make nice hard turns and i've blown a few tires on my lib riding to hard, im talkin mach speed. the lib will ride good on groomers, pow, you name it. its a good all around board. but the edge hold is not as good as people say, unless i just ride to fuckn hard
